Policy Guidance Help System logo

Examples of corrective actions and procedures that interpreting physicians must follow regarding poor quality images would be providing feedback to technologists and physicists on image optical density and contrast, patient motion and other artifacts, compression, technique factors, and positioning. Participation in medical audits means either being designated as the audit interpreting physician with responsibilities for analyzing and discussing medical audit outcome data with other interpreting physicians, or discussing this data with the lead or audit interpreting physician.
